THE first game of the season was with the Maryville Wildcats and was played at Maryville. Missouri. The field was soggy and so was not very well adapted to a fast type of open field playing. Because of the mud. both teams were forced to hold pretty well to line play until the last quarter when an aerial attack was resorted to. As is the case with most season openers, the game at Maryville was not flawless, although both teams played exceptionally good football for the first game of the season. The game ended with Maryville on the long end of a 12 to 6 score. The Bobcats were the only team to score on the Maryville Wildcats during the 1931 season.
Next came the “B team from Nebraska University. This game was perhaps the hardest of the season. Along with the Nebraskans came such stars as Roby. Kroger. Miller, and Staab and so consequently it was a long evening for the Bobcats. The fact that Nebraska had such a formidable team did not daunt the Peruvians however. Statistics of the game show that Peru out-yarded Nebraska and outplayed them in every division of the game, but there are those unaccountable things known as breaks which enter into almost every football game and so the score at the end of the game was I 3 to 7 in favor of the scarlet clad boys from the University.

1931 FOOTBALL VARSITY
THK 1931 football season was entirely successful as far as the Peru Bobcats were concerned. Not because of the number of games won. but because of the number and quality of the material that was broken in during the season. This material will be invaluable during the next few years. Of the twenty-two lettermen. twelve are first year men. while only four will not be back for the 1932 season. This merely means that the outlook is very bright for next season.
The season was an even break as far as the Bobcats were concerned. Peru won four games, lost four, and tied one. The schedule was one of the heaviest contracted by Peru in recent years, but the Bobcats emerged from the season with a total of eighty-six points to the opponents' sixty-one. The twenty-five points difference between Peru and its opponents showed the team's power.
Peru finished second in the N. I. A. A. Conference of which Omaha University was chain-pion. This conference consists of Chadron. Kearney. Omaha University. Peru, and Wayne. Hach team in the conference plays every other conference team, consequently the Bobcats played four conference games. Non-conference games were played with strong teams from the N. C. A. C. Conference and with the Maryville Teachers College Wildcats of Maryville. Mo.
r OACH GLENN GILKESON has finished his second year as Head Mentor of the Peru Bobcat football team. The coach is always the guiding hand in intercollegiate football and "Gilk has certainly been the hand behind the Bobcats during the past two years. He not only is a student of football, but has a knack of getting his knowledge across to his men and also the power of instilling drive and "fire into his teams. Although the Gilkeson coached teams have not established any outstanding records, they have learned many of those things which are most important and yet are so often overlooked by coaches. Some of these things are: sportsmanship, co-operation, and clean, right living. These are the things for which our coach. Glenn Gilkeson. stands and we are proud of him and his record as a man. athlete, and coach.

week following the Nebraska game, the Doane Tigers came to Peru for the annual battle. As is the case with most scoreless ties this game was relatively uneventful. Peru outdowned and outyarded the Doane team three to one and played in the Tiger’s territory during most of the game, but was unable to score.
Once again the Bobcats broke over the conference lines and engaged in a battle with the Midland Warriors at Fremont. Midland had a team of veterans, some of which were all-state men. and so could not be called a set-up by any means. The Warriors opened the firing by scoring a touchdown during the first quarter, but were upset when Peru came back and marched down the field for two touchdowns in a row and completed one try-for-point. making the game 13 to 6 in favor of the Peru Bobcats. The game was very representative of every style of football. Both teams used a great deal of aerial work as well as straight line football, trick plays, and open field football. Playing conditions were not the best because of a fog. which covered the field making it rather difficult to distinguish the players. Ackerson. Peru guard, played a marvelous game at Fremont.
